couple of big steps back. >> good evening from newtown, connecticut. we'll have more on that coming up. >> and in washington, the nra breaks it's silence. the kudlow report starts now. >> all right let's go to john harwitt first in dc. i think i agree with what you were saying first. >>> he moved to plan b and the hope that further negotiations could produce progress. >> our plan b would protect american taxpayers who make $1 million or less and have their current rates extended. i continue to have hope. that would reduce spending as well as revenues on the table. >> but of course the democrats in the senate. didn't see plan b as a step forward. harry reid came out and said, john boehner is walking away from the nenegotiations. >> every time we get down to something from the long-term financial think for this country. they do the charlie brown thing, they jerk the ball away. and this is what is going on. >> the posturing conceals the process that we are not aware of. but i talked to a budget aid that said, he thinks things are getting worse in terms for prospects of a deal. >> by th

tragedy in newtown, connecticut. three days since we gathered as a nation to pray for the victims. today a few more of the 20 small children and six educators who were taken from us will be laid to rest. we may never know all the reasons why this tragedy happened. we do know that every day since more americans have died of gun violence. we know such violence has terrible consequences for a society. if there's even one thing that we can do to prevent any of these events, we have a deep obligation, all of us, to try. over these past five days, a discussion has reemerged as to what we might do not only to deter mass shootings in the future, but to reduce the epidemic of gun violence that plagues this country every single day. and it's encouraging that people of all different backgrounds and believes and political persuasions have been willing to challenge some old assumptions and change long-standing positions. that conversation has to continue. but this time the words need to lead to action. we know this is a complex issue that stirs deeply held passions and political divides. as i said on

tragedy in newtown, connecticut, to try to put the pressure on republicans. he talked about them taking off their partisan war paint. he said he'd more than met them halfway in terms of spending cuts that he's offered, coming up in the income threshold for tax increases, and he has the upper hand in public opinion. there's no question about that. he is not surrendering that at this point. the question is whether speaker john boehner can move his caucus, even as far as he's already moved further toward the president. that's what the next couple days are going to be about. >> thank you very much, john. do you think, you think really sort of rumbling that we're hearing means that we have actually moved further away from the possibility of what i'm going to call the first of the 12 days of cliffness? >> insiders in both parties are telling me they think the prospects of no deal and going over the cliff have risen significantly. now, i continue to think that the fundamentals exist, as the president said in his news conference, there are only a few hundred billion dollars apart over te

into question by the tragedy in newtown. he said he did not renounce his statement in the 2008 campaign that second amendment is an individual right, not just a right for militias or armed forces. but he stlaid there is a lot of room left. >> i said i'm willing to make some cuts. what separates is us probably a few hundred billion dollars. the idea we would put our economy at risk because you can't bridge that gap doesn't make a lot of sense. >> brian, sorry, that's a soundbite related to the fiscal cliff. of course the president also had comment about that. he said that republicans simply have not gone -- met him half way the way he met them half way. only few hundred billion apart from john boehner which isn't all that much over ten-year span. all of this sets the table for john boehner's press conference a few minutes from now where he is going to talk about his response to the president. >> okay. indeed. well follow that at 2:15. thank you very much for that. going back to the issue of gun control. nearly 11 million guns sold last year and this year could be a record year.
